Okay. It's official. With just three itty-bitty weeks before The Summer of Color 5 begins, it's time to start counting down to the fun! Beginning of course, with some of our SOC traditions.
One of my favorite ways to get the color mojo going, is to watch a video I first shared 5 years ago when The Summer of Color was just a baby. She's grown up a lot since then, but this one is worth revisiting. Plus, since it's been a part of our party from the beginning, I think it only fitting that in this, the anniversary of our 5th year together, we start from the top. So, without further adieu, check out this absolutely fabulous video from artist Holton Rower. . . .
Dreamy, right? Doesn't it make you want to pull out your old acid wash jeans and get pouring? (Yeah, me too).
Speaking of growing up, I'm terribly excited to report that this year, the SOC is turing it up a notch. Along with our traditional play, we're introducing some new elements that - although top secret until our introductory week beginning June 1st - I hope you'll agree are quite exciting. After all, I gotta keep you guessing somehow!
Oh, and about that: I've been asked a lot of questions over the years about The Summer of Color and how it all began. Should you have a question about the SOC that you'd like to have answered, please do ask away. Anything and everything is fair game. You can post your questions here in the comments below or over here in our Facebook group. I'll compile them all and get back to you the week before we begin.
Yes? Okay, yes. Wheeeeeeee. . . .
